Bookmark and Share

Mars Fam is originally from Upper Egypt and immigrated 30 years ago to Canada. After finding a CFHU ad in the paper, he went to Israel for the Ulpan (Hebrew language program), and also participated in the Rothberg Summer Program in 2011. He loved it so much he came back in 2012 and took the Conflict Resolution From Theory To Practice course and also The History Of The Arab-Israeli Conflict. He talks about wanting to learn more of the history of the Palestinian conflict, with the hope that he could become an "instrument to be a peacemaker". Mars is a truly inspiring student!
